60% Dental Seats Are Unfilled

Having heard of shortage of doctors, teachers, lecturers and so on, it's time to turn to another similar trend. Going by vacancies in d
ental colleges in the state, it's likely that a shortage of dentists will affect us in the years to come. The figures are shocking -- over 60% of the seats in dental colleges in the state have not been filled.

The Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) has taken serious note of this and drawn up a plan to reduce the bar to fill up vacant seats. The proposal will be sent to dental education regulator DCI soon.

If RGUHS has its way, a student who has scored 50% marks in PU but not crossed the bar in CET, will still be able to compete for vacant dental seats. Going by the fact that the number of vacant seats is increasing every year, this should not be improbable. In other words, candidates who have secured eligibility criteria in optional subjects in PUC (PCB with 50%) but failed to secure eligibility - 50% - in the Common Entrance Test (CET) will be allowed for vacant seats.
